MCCC Adds Women's Cross Country Team
MCCC will make women's cross country its ninth varsity sport, Athletics Director John Simone announced September 2. MCCC fielded coed cross country teams throughout the 1970s and '80s, but the program has been inactive since 1989. The return of women's cross country is a natural fit for the school, considering the strength of the sport at area high schools. "The high school cross country programs on the women's side are very good in our area," Simone said.

"The college's is growing in terms of students and in terms of penetration into the community. We're also seeing a rise in traditional students coming to the college directly from high school and we hope this helps to answer the need. It's also an admissions tool for our college to attract young females who are looking to continue their running in college." More here.
